Termite or flying ant




Flying ants will be making their appearances very soon as will their close swarming brother, the termite swarm. It is during this time of year when folks come home to a house full of what look to be flying ants, only to find that they are in fact a swarming termite. It is critical for you to determine which it is, your wallet will thank you for it. A termite job can cost from seven hundred dollars to well over a grand or two where as an ant treatment can run a hundred bucks or less. See my point. Educate yourself and don't take the word of your local pest control salesman who comes out to give you a quote as he will surely be looking to make a buck.

I enjoyed reading your short article. Your right it sure can be difficult to identify the difference between flying ants and short termites as they do look alike. There is a way to tell the difference, although you will most likely need a microscope or magnifying glass to diagnose. The termites will have wings of equal length, lacks petioles, and have straight antennae. The ants most distinguishing feature is their bent antennae.

$1,000 for termite treatment? Where do I sign up? I'm in South Florida and am getting estimates for $8k to $10k. Seems I have no choice but to let the termites eat my house.

Actually I did try this method before, I don't know why they keep coming back.
